Played a demo the other day at my FLGS – Game Night.net – on 6A in Barnstable, MA. – and decided it was time to move my KemVar up a few spots in the painting queue. I still need to mark facings on the bases, but I’m pleased with the results:
Seeing as MERCS is usually demo-ed on small gaming areas, I re-purposed a couple old pieces of terrain for an outdoor industrial setting. Needs a bit more weathering and some additional resin scenics for clutter/cover, but I think it’s acceptable.
Now to carve out some time and get back to GNN for more gaming.
Read the article at the link for more information. Basically it’s a sci fi, deep-space board game in the vein of Dead Space and Aliens. The crowd-funding method of 4000 plus backers raised nearly one million dollars to see the game enter production.
I pledged a Biohazard level, plus additional for some of the extras. I’ll end up with double the regular amount of figs, all kinds of special characters and terrain. A screaming deal if wargaming is your thing. This was my first participation in a Kickstarter campaign and I’m glad it went so well.
Nearly a million bucks… wow.
Not to be a buzz-kill, but I can’t help but think if that same crowd-funding technique and passion couldn’t be poured into non-recreational, charitable causes.
